The Zone is Ara's sports science and wellness centre based at the City campus, Christchurch.
We provide fitness testing and assessment services for elite and recreational athletes, clinical groups, and those who are just interested in knowing the status of their fitness, health and wellness.
We can also design assessment and training programmes for a wide range of clients and can tailor these to suit. For example, we have designed programmes to enhance sporting performance and help with weight loss. We have sophisticated equipment that can measure your oxygen consumption, movement, speed, force production, muscle and body fat mass.
The Zone uses purpose-built sport and exercise science facilities – the same as those used by our Bachelor of Applied Science students specialising in sports and exercise science, physical activity and health promotion or human nutrition.
